@hairnet congratulations! thats an amazing experience I'm sure. What bike did you use?
I went to the race in downtown Sacto today. I stood for three hours in the baking sun at 20m to go, my head was sticking over the rail in the course whilst almost catching a mouth full of handle bars. It was sweet. Stage 2 is 5 miles away from my house should be equally as fun.

Today was the first time in my life I ever raced a bicycle. I didn't get last and I didn't crash, so overall it was a win. I mostly just hung back and just watched things play out, next week I'll try to get podium.
Going to stage 2 TT now. I'll take some pics and upload later.
I had a job interview at a new place doing something I'll love; and I quit my job.
If I was younger, I'd say I was stoked or something along those lines.
I had Monday off randomly so I did a bunch of random drugs.
ride bikes, eat food. the circle of life.
Today I put in 66 miles.
Good ride on the Puch
I got really angry at cheap crappy bike stuff we have more than enough of and broke down some boxes and then biked home to some reggae, ska and Black Sabbath.
Went out to the start of the Amgen TOC stage today with @Jaytron. First time at a pro race. Pretty sweet. It was pretty hot out tho (95-100 deg)
Today I came to terms with the fact that hot weather is just not my jam. I'd rather it was 70 and cloudy, than this bull**** 90 degrees of sweat and scorching sunburn during a simple 25 minute walk to get lunch. I seriously have loved SF for the last 8 years, but a move back to Portland may be in order sooner rather than later, and I'm finally completely OK with that.
